The master_lock is used to protect multiple CPUS runs into State[1].
It could not be used to protect the CPU runs into State[0].

The patch is to make sure that before arm clk turned off, need to check
whether all the cpus are in State[1]. And the cpu who first wake up from
State[1], need to configure CCM to RUN mode.

This patch has been integrated into vendor kernel and fixed customer's issue.
I could not think out of a better solution to restructure the master lock,
and this may introduce new issues.

Thanks,
Peng.
